International internship & jobs
The main aim of our international partnerships is to provide Mod'Spé Paris students with an opportunity to undertake internships abroad and participate in training programmes delivered by our partner institutions. Mod'Spé Paris deliberately provides its students with the chance to undertake their year-end internships abroad. Each year, the school's partner institutions send us a list of internship offers from fashion companies in their respective countries.

International internships give students an ideal opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the world of business and discover a new culture. It is an experience that gives them a real advantage when looking for a job. For information about international internships, contact the International Relations Department to inform them that you are looking for an internship.
The aim of the EUNEXT project is to improve and facilitate cross-border internships in Europe.
The first achievement of the EUNEXT project is a website, which provides:
a catalogue of resources to help students organise their internships.
fact sheets about the status of interns in different European countries; the website also includes a draft proposal for a European intern status.
a forum for exchange and cooperation with professionals.
a section featuring events and news about internships in Europe.
The website is designed for all individuals and organisations affected by cross-border mobility (students, teachers, companies, etc.). EUNEXT was developed as part of the EU Leonardo de Vinci programme. The project involves 30 partners - universities and student mobility professionals - from 11 European countries. A second project, to create a European network of cross-border internship resources and expertise, is in the pipeline.
